Imagine seeing green and blue all in one day and at just one cool spot.
At Catanauan Cove Resort in Catanauan, Quezon, guests are greeted by the rustling of leaves coming from the more than 12,000 different kinds of trees and the soothing blue of the sea. Amazingly, this paradise getaway may look surreal but the verdant area merging with the vast cobalt blue color of the South China Sea is so real, it's breath-taking.
Catanauan Cove is a very rare discovery because this isolated haven is strategically located in the undulating hills of Barangay Cutcutan in Quezon. The bare land was magically transformed into a first-class tropical beach resort where guests can truly be one with nature.
Located almost 250 kilometers south of Luzon from Manila, this 11-hectare property was developed by JEJ Group of Companies.
Buddy Javier, president and CEO of JEJ Group of Companies said that Catanauan Cove is the perfect destination to fulfill anyone's dreams of natural "high" of comfort and relaxation. "People who will pay a visit will truly practice their five senses for a perfect off-the-city leisure," he said.
"Aside from the five senses, we offer comfort and complete privacy as each of our modern nipa huts, complete with first-class amenities, are properly distanced from each other and surrounded by tropical landscape including the two and three bedroom villas, duplexes, dormitories, honeymooner cottages, and family rooms," he said.
The resort will soon have a residential area with a high-rise hotel and possibly a casino to attract more visitors. Phase three of the project will be dedicated to solemnity with life-size Stations of the Cross, a huge statue of the risen Jesus Christ, garden parks, and residential houses, all with an ocean view.
"We also offer this place for people who just want to relax, read books or surf the internet while enjoying the full view of the blue ocean and even renew their faith," Javier stressed.
Aside from the infinity pool and Jacuzzi, Catanauan Cove Resort also offers ATVs, horseback riding, beach football and volleyball, boating, snorkeling, fishing, scuba diving, and even island-hopping.
Dining is also an experience as Catanuan Cove's F&B outlets offer fresh seafood. Visitors can feast via its famous boodle fight style of eating at the Kolokoy Grill during lunch or anytime at the fine dining restaurant behind the main lobby overlooking the sea.
